Takes some time, but worth it

16.08.2015
AKG headphones have been lifelong companions to me. STarted out with a K-171 which served me well for 12 years, then moved on to K-240 MKII, which has been unbeaten so far... until now.

Unfortunately the first pair arrived with a manufacturing fault, but Thomann did a stellar job replacing the unit with a good one. Doesn't score good points for quality control on AKG's side, but I guess these things happen (hence 4 stars for quality instead of 5).

Build quality: flawless, as usual with their "pro" line. Ear pads are similar to other AKG cans, except under the velour you have memory foam that provides a better low-frequency insulation (without increased pressure on your head). You get two cables, an orange straight one, and the more practical coiled cable, both are of extremely good quality (I have one from my old K-171 that still works after rolling the office chair over it a couple of times).

Comfort: awesome. Light, but sits on its place well, even if you move around with it quite a lot.

Sound: these headphones need to be broken in (they start to sound better after 50 hours, really good after 100 hours of use). After that they really start to sound great. Spacious, incredible 3-dimensional sound stage, with fantastic separation between instruments. Since they are open, don't expect the kind of bass build-up / booming bass that is typical to semi-open and closed models, but in return you get a much more "effortless" sounding, precise low end.

All-in-all: I am using my AKG K-712 PRO for mastering and mixing jobs with great results.

Best headphone I've ever had

Paul1119, 23.10.2017
I wanted a reference studio headphone for mixing/mastering orchestral music, and listening to music at home. This AKG suits both of my needs.

Pros:
- Incredible space
- Outstanding clarity.
- Flat sound (not too much basses and highs).
- Comes with two cables.
- Comfortable even after hours wearing it.

Cons:
- The build quality could be a bit better: when I move my head sometimes I hear some sort of crackling noise.

In summary, this is an amazing headphone. I recommend everyone to consider buying this headphone (and a good quality amplifier of course).
